During the winter term Siobhan Richardson, professional actor and choreographer, presented intimacy choreography workshops for York University theatre students. In the video above, Richardson and our 4th-year actors discuss the techniques taught, and the importance of choreographing intimacy for the stage and screen.

Richardson’s workshops offer a language for staging sexuality, whether it be for film, television or theatre.  Through discussion and exercises, participants learn valuable techniques to improve their storytelling while maintaining a safe and professional rehearsal environment.

York University is committed to maintaining safe spaces for our students.  To learn more about Siobhan Richardson’s intimacy direction, you can visit her website here.
